DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We travel to Oxford, home to Britain’s oldest university and the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ steeped in history and character.
Day 2 – After breakfast we take you to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, situated in a working naval base. Here you will have the opportunity to visit your choice of either Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860 or the National Museum of the Royal Navy. Later, there will be free time to explore the other highlights the maritime city has to offer perhaps wander around Old Portsmouth, with its cobbled streets, picturesque Camber Dock, traditional pubs and tucked-away tearooms, or Gunwharf Quays, with 90 outlet stores and 30 restaurants, bars and cafés, not to mention the Spinnaker Tower for a bird’s eye view of the waterfront.
Day 3 – Enjoy a day at leisure to explore Southsea, a charming, traditional Victorian seaside resort. After a relaxing stroll along the beach, perhaps visit some of the interesting museums including the D-Day Museum situated on the seafront and Cumberland House Natural History Museum.
Day 4 – This morning we visit Beaulieu Palace House & Estate Experience, where 800 years of heritage awaits. Explore the stately home, the world-famous National Motor Museum and the 13th century Abbey which are all surrounded by picturesque gardens.
Day 5 – After a leisurely breakfast we return home.
